When it comes to the Bible, I dont think Obama wants to take on Dobson, unless he wants to get his empty suit handed to him, so to speak. Unlike Obamas former pastor, Dobson actually knows and teaches the Bible, not some off the wall social gospel. IMHO
Any 2nd-year student in a Bible-believing college would eat Obama’s lunch. I am disappointed more Bible believers are not calling him on his total lack of Bible knowledge, specifically in the area of dispensations.
His former pastor taught him zilch.
“The essence of dispensationalism, then, is the distinction between Israel and the church. This grows out of the dispensationalist’s consistent employment of normal or plain or historical-grammatical interpretation, and it reflects an understanding of the basic purpose of God in all His dealings with mankind as that of glorifying Himself through salvation and other purposes as well.” — pg 48, “Dispensationalism”; Dr Charles Ryrie, Moody 1995
In other words, don’t take a verse out of context or otherwise nullifying the importance to whom God was speaking to, and what was required of that audience as determined by the amount of revelation God had given them, up to that time.
I heard him saying the bible says slavery is OK in leviticus.
“Slavery” in Leviticus is much more like what we call indentured servitude.
